With a new exhibition at the Museum of London on the great detective, opening today, it’s time to examine his appearances on screen. He is the most regularly acted character in the history of film, but a few performances stand out. 1. Basil Rathbone – In his 14 films as Sherlock, he had to deal [...]

What are trade unions for? When I worked for the GMB we used to ask that question quite a lot. The majority of my time wasn’t taken up planning the overthrow of neo-capitalism – although there was plenty of neo-capitalism to be overthrown back then – but on questions of basic survival. What does a [...]

What a disgusting spectacle it was to see and hear the Labour benches in the Commons coming out in full hearted support from the besieged leader Ed Milliband. No, it wasn’t about the economy or immigration nor the sharp fall in unemployment it was to attack that essentially decent, hardworking and thoughtful Minister (who takes [...]

David Cameron is planning a “gamechanging” promise on Europe and immigration, it’s said. The Times and the Sun report that the PM is thinking about demanding the right to stop some EU nationals entering the UK. “David Cameron is considering demanding that Britain be given an “emergency brake” on the number of European jobseekers after [...]

Just how low can Labour go? Yesterday I was chatting to a Labour MP about the Ed Miliband issue. “Forget about Ed. He’s the least of our problems,” he said ruefully, before launching into a litany of his party’s woes. It’s now 18 months since I wrote a piece revealing Labour was pursuing a “35 [...]

One of the saddest meetings I’ve ever had as an MEP was in Athens, with a 20-year-old from Enfield called Andrew Symeou. Two years earlier, Andrew had been celebrating the end of his A-levels on a Greek island. There was a fracas in a nightclub, during which a young man tragically died. Andrew wasn’t in [...]

While Gordon Brown was burbling on in the Commons yesterday about the constitution, and in his usual fashion taking no responsibility whatsoever for the mess he helped cause, a fascinating report was being discussed elsewhere. The Future of England Survey was produced by constitutional specialists and is based on in-depth polling on attitudes. It is [...]

So, the other day, a Kurdish student attempted to get the National Union of Students to pass a motion condemning the “Islamic State”. It’s a pretty uncontroversial motion; after all, what Isil are doing on a day to day basis – the murders, the rapes, the imposition of slavery – is absolutely monstrous. Yet, the [...]

Today’s PMQs should have been relatively straightforward for David Cameron. He arrived boosted by more good news on the unemployment front and his own side is greatly enjoying the difficulty in which Ed Miliband finds himself. Everything that can go wrong for the Labour leader seems to be going wrong. In tabloid land he was [...]

Do you remember the Squeezed Middle? In 2011 it was the Oxford English Dictionary’s “Word of the Year”. It was held up as an example of how Ed Miliband was setting the agenda in highlighting the recession’s grinding impact on middle-income families. Actually, it wasn’t his phrase, but something he’d appropriated from the then shadow [...]
